He said the ATM was found in the roadway.

Scrape marks could be seen on the street where witnesses told Local 10 News that someone chained the ATM to their pickup truck and tried to drag it away.

The road marks show they only made it a few feet before they either gave up or were spotted.

Witnesses said police found the empty truck a block away and towed it away as evidence.
